Finding Elaine’s Family: A Case Study

A presentation by Jennifer Blain – February 5th


The next AFHS General Meeting will be at the church on Monday, February 5th at 7 pm.  See the AFHS calendar for location.

The Program:

It all started with a birth certificate found in a friend’s cellar and it has led Jennifer on an exhaustive search to find what she can about her friend’s family history.  From the Riel Rebellion, to Hudson’s Bay forts, to missing daughters and rogue uncles – Jennifer has pursued some very tricky ancestors and has found innovative (and sometimes old-fashioned) ways to break down brick walls.

We were so impressed with what Jennifer has accomplished when she visited Family History Coaching, that we asked her to share her friend’s story and her research methods with us.
